THE Basingstoke Ice Users Forum are calling as many ice users, including Bison fans, to attend the Communities, Environment and Partnership Committee meeting of Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council on Wednesday, December 18 at 6.30pm.

This is to make sure that all political parties attending the meeting understand how much a the ice rink means to the community.

Currently the existing ice rink is running on borrowed time and Basingstoke is on the brink of losing the most successful sports team this town has ever had and one of it’s most valuable community facilities.

That is unbelievable, quite honestly it would be a travesty.
